The Evolution of a Card

I wanted to make some birthday cards that were not necessarily masculine, but at least gender neutral. I was inspired by this card, but as I was working I decided to make a few changes. I wanted to make several of these cards, since we have a big family and I send (okay, try to send)everyone a card, so I didn't use glitter. Then I decided that I only wanted to use the birthday cake stamp from the stamp set. I tried using three cakes, but that was a little much.

So, here is what I came up with:

I ran out of the argyle patterned paper, so here is one I made using some another design in the East Coast Prep Paper:
